    Hello Michal,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to test desktop applications other than WPF. Test Studio only supports WPF desktop app automation. Test Studio does not support testing against WinForms desktop applications, nor non-WPF components within a WPF app. It only works with:

    - Web based HTML/ASP/ASP.NET applications
    - Web based Silverlight applications
    - Silverlight Out Of Browser applications
    - WPF desktop applications

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
    Are you enjoying Test Studio? We’d appreciate your vote in the ATI automation awards.

    Hello Alpesh,

    Yes, the information in the previous post from my colleague Plamen is still valid.

    Test Studio only supports WPF desktop application automation.

    Thank you for your understandings.
